Hello, all,

I was wondering what particular scenes in the entire Avengers Canon are specific for really bringing out an aspect of a character that really draws you to them, that really shows a part of them you love, find adorable, are inspired by, etc.

As most of you know, am a Steedophile. I love four moments in the Canon that make me love and respect Steed the most:

1. The 13th Hole--When Steed and Emma are playing pick-up sticks and he moved his stick, but then glances as Emma to see if she saw, and she did. So, he could not cheat and continue to play on. That's my guy--he wants to win and will cheat to do so, only stopping if someone he knows catches him!

2. A Touch of Brimstone--of course, the pea on the board scene! Blowing the pea off the board showed Steed's amazingly quick mental resources, where he can analyze a scene, figuring out a way to get around the danger while playing by the rules. Steed's cunning, streets smarts and quick wits shine out here.

3. The Cybernauts--As I've mentioned before, the funniest line in all of the Avengers is when Steed holds up the curved shotgun, which did not protect the victim from having his neck broken, and aiming it around said "Whichever way you point, you hit the chandelier." (paraphrase but very close). I love the funny wit of Steed!

4. The Return of the Cybernauts--When Steed wakes up in the room, after a controlled Emma knocked him out, he sees the dire and dreadful situation he and his partner are in. He now fully knows the evil nature of Beresford, and the terrible situation that will happen if he and Emma are both under his control. Steed then masters his internal fortitude and uses his strength to overpower the hold of the cybernaut and have the watch put on the machines wrist, not his. I LOVE that moment; overcoming impossible odds with a focused capacity to master one's own strength.

I'd love to hear other Avenger moments the illustrate what you love best about your favorite character(s).

I'll have to think more about this but two spring to mind.

The Winged Avenger - I love the playfulness of their whole eee-urp exchange in Steed's apartment. Steed impression makes Emma laugh and then when they part she leans over his shoulder 'ee-urp?' 'Eee-urp'.

The Golden Eggs - Cathy is nervously trying to reassemble her vase whilst Steed, carefree, wanders around shaving, brushing his teeth, cracking bad jokes - then of course he causes the vase to fall off its plinth and she stamps on his foot in reaction.

It's an excellent question and thread idea! If we were talking about another of my favourite shows, one that I have a far more detailed knowledge of, then I would answer straight away. But I'm not so hot with recalling specific scenes and their context in The Avengers because there are so many episodes and I haven't seen them often enough. I'll definitely have a think about it, but can't promise how quickly I'll come up with anything!
